    I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Winterbash. We have not yet officially committed the site to the festivities this year, so let this be the mod-sanctioned Meta post: do we want to participate in the Hat Dash this year? – Kit Z. Fox Nov 25 '15 at 19:15
  • Gloves. I recommend gloves, too. – Mitch Nov 25 '15 at 19:32
  • Yes, if it does begin. Well, the biggest secret of this year's Winter Bash isn't what hats there will be. It's that who the Hat Czar is, since Jon stepped down. – M.A.R. Nov 25 '15 at 20:18

    @Mitch: But not mufflers. Everyone at EL&U must continue to speak freely and without the inhibiting obstruction of excessively large scarves. – Sven Yargs Nov 25 '15 at 21:27

    I'm most interested in what our esteemed moderator, @nohat has to say on this subject! – AndyT Nov 27 '15 at 16:27
  • @AndyT You know that's how he got his name, right? – Kit Z. Fox Dec 3 '15 at 18:08

  • I hope so because hats are absolutely vital. – Tonepoet Dec 11 '15 at 3:48

People like hats.

Okay, um, that's... not really a question, but, we can start off slow. Yes! True. Correct. People do, for the most part, like hats.

Will there be hats?

What sort of tradition-breaking libertines do you take us for? Hats are coming, friend*.

Will there be new hats?

There sure will! In fact, we will be bringing you an all-new assortment of hats for your avatar-decorating needs, as we have done every year since the very first year of Hat Dash, 2011. (This is because we love you, and certainly not because we forget where we store the old hats every year, like so many squirrels with their nuts. Nope, nope, nope.)

    Maybe shoes to cover my blue feet? – Taryn Nov 25 '15 at 21:49

    This is Stack Exchange, @bluefeet. Second Life and Blizzard are over that way. – Pops Nov 25 '15 at 21:51

    Huzzah! But, out of interest, how many sorts of tradition-breaking libertines are there? – Tim Lymington Nov 25 '15 at 22:23

    In a break with tradition, only one. – Matt E. Эллен Dec 3 '15 at 20:41

I am cocklaphobic.

No head thingies round here, please.

    You will be able to signal your fear of shellfish when hats are implemented, and never have to see them. Or hats. Actually, I'm not sure about cockles: they may not be affected. – Andrew Leach Dec 7 '15 at 15:46
  • It seems the rest of the community has overruled you on this one, but as Andrew pointed out, you will be able to stop yourself from seeing hats. After the event starts, click on the snowflake icon in the top bar (it'll be next to the usual notification and rep change icons) and look on the bottom left of the pop-up for an "I hate hats" link. – Pops Dec 8 '15 at 18:27
